We know sometimes couponing can be confusing, and we are here to help!

Here at True Couponing, we receive questions daily about all kinds of things pertaining to couponing. To help answer your questions, we will regularly post Questions and Answers to some of the Frequently Asked Questions we receive from our readers.

Today we will answer two questions.

The first question is from a subscriber via email…

Question #1:

I’m having a pretty difficult time finding the printables when I click on them. I think perhaps your links are expired.

Answer #1:

We check all of our printable links before posting them to verify they are correct.  However, most printable coupons have print limits.  Once the print limit is reached, that coupon is no longer available. If you click on a printable link that is no longer available from the link we posted, please let us know by leaving a comment on that post.  We will update the list as soon as possible.

It is best to print any coupons you think you may use (high value or a product you use often) as soon as you see they are available.  This is one reason we post our grocery store lists as early as possible…to give our subscribers the best access to those printable coupons.

The next question comes from our TrueCouponing Facebook page

Question #2:

“Question about the printables. I attended the class this week. Should we be printing multiple copies of these coupons? That seems like a large expense in paper?”

Answer #2:

We suggest printing high value coupons for products that you normally use as soon as you see they are available.  Most printable coupons have a limited number of prints.  Almost any coupon valued at $1 or more will run out of prints pretty quickly.

We also post deals we find on paper and ink!  Here are some tips to save money on your printing costs:

  • set your printer to gray-scale before printing your coupons
  • use the lowest quality printer settings
  • print your coupons on the back of  junkmail or your kids school papers
    (The grocery stores do not care what is on the back of your coupon.  Have a designated paper tray to put any standard size 8.5 x 11 paper that is blank on one side.)
  • join a reward program at an office supply store and use your rewards from purchasing paper and ink to purchase more paper and ink
  • print the high value coupons or coupons for products you use regularly as soon as you see them available (you can print others as you need them)
